Product Description

As a producer, Luc Besson (The Transporter series, Taken, District B-13) has made extremely profitable B-movie hay out of a fairly strict formula incorporating whisper-thin femme fatales, parkour, Gaultier, and guns. Colombiana, another Besson collaboration with director Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3), doesn't exactly blaze new trails, but the combination of Zoe Saldana's fierce performance and a dash of oddball surrealism sure makes the running time zoom by. Purportedly beginning as a sequel to The Professional, the story follows a beautiful South American assassin bent on rubbing out the murderers of her parents. Unfortunately, the closer she gets to her drug lord prey, the more her own loved ones (including Michael Vartan and an amusingly hambone Cliff Curtis) are put at risk. Things go boom, frequently. Director Megaton handles the action with the rapid-cut, blue-filtered zing common to the Besson factory, but things receive a definite boost via the efforts of Saldana, whose performance combines the intensely physical with an appealing soulfulness. Whether slithering through air ducts in a skin-tight cat suit or using a toothbrush as an impromptu weapon, she somehow manages to maintain an air of beyond-the-call gravitas. Also of note are the scenes of the heroine plying her lethal trade, some of which bear the funky logic-defying influence of Mario Bava's great fugue-state caper movie Danger: Diabolik. Ultimately, although the story elements and secondary character motivations rarely hang together, Colombiana's distinguishing marks help place the film somewhere above the level of guilty pleasure. When pitted against the likes of a mobster with a glass-paneled shark tank for a dance floor, reality can take a seat, frankly. --Andrew Wright

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 21 2012
This is an action packed film with a female heroine of sorts. It starts in Bogota, Colombia in 1992. Cataleya Restrepo aged ten (Amandla Stenberg) is a young school girl, whose father is mixed up in the sort of things that one would not declare on a tax return. He is forced to conclude a 'business deal' that is not to his liking ' he realises that he needs to put some distance betwixt him and the inevitable trouble that is to follow. He fails and both he and his wife are killed more or less in front of Cataleya. However, he has given her a sim card an address in Chicago and told to go to the US Embassy.

This then kicks off the action, involving some excellent street running and edge of seat stuff. Need lees to say she makes it to the US and to Chicago, where she contacts her uncle Emilio (Cliff Curtis). He begins her education and takes her into the family. The film moves on fifteen years to the now grown woman who is now Zoe Saldana and it must be said, to use the common vernacular ' is 'well fit'. She is now an assassin, but one with her own agenda and that is the avenging of her parents murders.

She also lives a double life, has a seemingly pure sex relationship with an artist and could teach 'The Dog Whisperer' a thing or two about attack mutts. We have intrigue with the CIA, the Chicago PD being inept but dogged and basically a full throttle action fest. There are plot holes, but this is one of those films where you can forgive them as they are done in the name of entertainment as opposed to being just sloppy. It is from the pen (Screenplay) of Luc Besson (Leon, Taken and The Fifth Element) so you would expect a fair bit of polish. The direction from Olivier Megaton (I do hope that is his real name) is well above par and it does ooze style.

This movie is well worth watching with lots of action. Zoe Saldana is just great in that movie. I would recommend that you buy this movie as you won't regret it.
